New Year 2022 – Looking back to Move Forward.

How long has it been since I last blogged? Don’t answer that. It is a rhetorical question and the answer is a very long time. I used to blog regularly and with great gusto, but 2020 changed that. The truth is I just haven’t felt like writing anything to be shared publicly in a while. …

Recent Happenings

I have not felt like writing a blog post in a while. It just hasn’t been happening naturally because I haven’t had the time to sit and think about my days at all.The holiday shopping season is the busiest time of the year for me, and it seems to start earlier and earlier each year. …

Wanna See My New Studio?

Do you? Do you, do you, do you? It really does not matter if your answer to the above question is ‘no’. I am absolutely and totally in love with my new workspace and am going to share it with you anyway. A little backstory first… For ten years I have worked from home, screen …

Seeing Frida Kahlo in Brooklyn

The title of this blog makes it seem as though I managed to catch a glimpse of the artist posthumously floating along the streets of Brooklyn. Most unfortunately, this wasn’t the case at all. I visited the Frida Kahlo exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum a couple of weekends ago. It has taken me this long …

The SS18 Collection in progress

This week I finally started screen printing for Spring/Summer 2018. I had been itching to start ever since the boxes of shirts started arriving on my doorstep a few weeks ago, but I have been sick and germy. I’ve ordered more shirts and onesies than ever this year; I’m doing more markets than usual, and …

Playtime in NYC

– This blog post was written in pieces over the weekend. However, it could only go live this morning. Hope it still makes (relative) sense! I am starting to write this from a hotel room in Manhattan. I have just eaten a really nice dinner, taken a long bath, and watched a movie BY MYSELF. …

A Blog About Not Blogging

It has been a looooooong time since I last blogged. Blogging is like exercising, once you get out of a pattern it is really difficult to get back into it. Somehow,┬ásomething always comes up that needs to get done first. Laundry, errands, phone calls, the third season of Lillehammer on Netflix…hmm. I read somewhere that, …

Self Portraits, Sundaes, and Silly Games

Another week of camp has passed, and I’m getting ready for my final, glorious week of teaching before I depart for the UK, and a month of rest and relaxation. I would really like to write a lengthy and descriptive post, like I did last week, but to be honest I’m tired. Knackered – to …

Toast, Monkeys and Neon Shirts

It has been a week for toasting monkeys (see the definition for ‘monkey-toasting’ here). In between all the chores, administrative work, and carting kids around to various appointments, I did actually manage to get a large chunk of printing done (giving myself a virtual pat on the back as I type this). I have started …

Happy New Yarn/ Letting go

Well I had really hoped to send out a blog on New Year’s day. You know the kind: full to the brim with good intentions, motivational, packed with resolutions, and maybe with a snappy pep talk included for the year ahead. It never happened. Why? Well, New Year’s day turned out to be a little …
